I'm sure this has been stated somewhere in the 44 pages of this thread, but can someone point me in the direction of a way to determine shutter count on a 6D. EOScount.com doesn't seem to support the 6D.

For the 6D you could try Magic Lantern (external link) That's what I initially used for my 5D3.

Or you could try gphoto2 (external link) if you have a Mac or LINUX. I couldn't get it to work on my Mac so I used Magic Lantern

Tried this on my T4i but the site didn't even recognize I plugged in the camera.

Edit: Downloaded shutteractuations... that is saying error too. Strange. Wonder why. The computer recognizes it as what it is but the programs don't.

Edit again: Must have been the computer. Tried it on another and it worked. Oh well.

I've tried both shutteractuations and eoscount. Neither work.

When I open the ShutterCount (from shutteractuations.com) it first says, "Please connect camera to USB". Then, when I click "connect" it says, "Error Connection Camera".

Anyone have any insight? The website doesn't have any troubleshooting that I can find.

My camera shows up in my computer. I can go into the DCIM folder and view all my pictures. I have a 5dm3.

Thanks in advance!

Did you have to do anything special?
